Germany and Europe

German History Museum, Berlin

Completed: 2006

An exhibit for the German History Museum in Berlin with the theme "European Borders" was to be developed. A landscape model on the floor, 3 x 4 meters in size, shows the topographical situation of Europe. A projection overlaps the model with 30 different periods of time and the respective political borders. The relief model was mill-cut out of special synthetic material on the basis of a computer model that had been previously produced. The data of the computer model stem from measurements made by the Space Shuttle Mission. The recorded altitudes were transferred to a computer model in the desired projection type (geometrical presentation of the earth). At the same time the analog maps, which acted as a basis and had no unique type of projection, had to be digitalized and transformed into the specific projection of the model. In this way the landscape relief is congruently overlapped.
